Dear Diary, A Lot Has Happened

When you have three good news and three bad news, which would you share first? The good ones or the bad ones? Tell me.

Life Update

There is so much happening in my life right now, but I can't put them all in writing. This is partly because I am yet to process all my emotions and partly because the appointed time to share has not yet come.

Left to me, I will abandon this blog until I am ready. However, it is typical (and ethical, lol) of me to let you in into my world. I want you to know what my Heart Rays at this time. These are trying times.

One minute I'm smiling, the next minute I'm crying. It's been taking a lot from me to stay positive. A lottttt.

When I say 'to stay positive', I don't mean to pretend everything is okay. Nor do I mean to not allow myself to feel the emotions I need to feel. For me, staying positive is about allowing myself to feel what I need to feel, but then making the choice to live the best of the day, week, month etc without fear while accepting the things I can't control and trusting God for the things I prayed for.

A lot of people would agree with me that 2020 has been quite dramatic lately. Like, for crying out loud, what in the world is happening with the world??

Have good things happened? Yes.
Have bad things happened? Yes.
But that’s the struggle; fighting to focus on the good things. It takes intentionality and a lot of practice to focus and meditate on ONLY the good things. And I'm really really trying to!

Three Good News

I'm Alive and Healthy

I was feeling sick. So much that I couldn't go to church. I went to the hospital and ran some tests. I'm pretty fine now. No medical/health issues. None whatsoever. Thank You Jesus.

I Hosted A Couple's Night

I love love and I am a sucker for love stories. I'm thankful that I got to hear another beautiful love story while hosting the 'Testimony Night' for my friends, The Oguches.

How I love it when a couple can trace it all back to how they met and happened to be (getting) married. Oh my heart!

I Attended The First Wedding Party Of The Year With Kachi

It's no news that I love weddings. Amongst other things, I get to see old friends I'd not seen for a very long time.

As a single attending weddings, people always prodded me and said "you're next". At this wedding, some people smiled at me and said "I am following you"! Lol. This life.

Bad News

Now that you know about the good things, I'll just mention the bad things in order not to dwell on them for too long.

My phone Is Still Missing here
My dear Aunt, Oluchi Died
Gas Plant Exploded In Lagos

Sweetie, things happened. All I could think about was, why is this happening? Why are we constantly in a state of struggle, battling to keep our heads above water? And, why oh why does it always seem like bad things are happening back-to-back?

Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.
— 1Peter 5:7, ESV

I'm pushing my way through everything that's happening around me and taking it one day at a time.

If you are struggling with something right now in life, and you’re questioning your faith, then my heart goes out to you. It truly does. I know what pain feels like. When everything around you comes crashing down, all you want to do is end it so fast. But you know what. Something you don’t realize is that you were meant to walk this path. You may not understand it right now. But I assure you, there will be a rhythm, ray or reason for it one day.

What have you been up to lately?

Stay inspired.
Stay positive.
Stay lovely.
